THE PLAY:

Chinese New Year is the time to get together as a family, settle old scores and wipe the slates clean. But this year, for the Chens, there’s one thing missing…

It’s been one year since Rose left, walking away from her husband Henry, their online-dating-obsessed daughter, Jen, and their hopeless son, Ken. As their yearly family dinner draws closer and with a years’ worth of tension brewing, the stakes are higher than ever as the family’s flame begins to flicker. Will the New Year provide a fresh start for the Chens? And if so, will the family ever be the same again? 

Set in modern day Auckland, two actors play ten characters in a play that ignites the burning question all New Zealanders confront; where do I belong?

Light your way home...

THE TEAM:

PAT Theatre Company (Pretty Asian Theatre) is the creative partnership between James Roque and Chye-Ling Huang. PAT strives to explore, celebrate and honour the vital stories and unanswered questions at the heart of plays with Asian roots, and in turn brings forth new works that are inclusive of New Zealand's cultural and ethnic nuances.

James Roque and Chye-Ling Huang are multitalented graduates of Unitec's Performing and Screen Arts acting degree, appearing in shows including The Asphalt Kiss, The Dining Room and the sell-out season of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.

In their first year out of training, the duo co-founded Pretty Asian Theatre Company (PAT). In June the pair produced and starred in New Zealand's first ever season of David Henry Hwang's F.O.B.. 

Taking the reins as Directors are Eli Matthewson and Hamish Parkinson, whose credits as a duo include Square Eyed Pair and Velcro City - both of which have won Best Comedy at the Auckland Fringe.
